ASUS P6X58D Premium Motherboard is USB-3.0 Certified

The ASUS P6X58D Premium is the First Officially Recognized USB 3.0-enabled Motherboard Future proofing users with upcoming 32nm CPU support SATA6G and USB 3.0

The ASUS P6X58D Premium motherboard is the first motherboard officially certified by the USB Implementation Forum (USB-IF) to support USB 3.0 technology. Based on its superior design and performance, the P6X58D Premium was officially recognized for achieving USB 3.0 or SuperSpeed USB compliance on January 5, 2010. This makes it the first in the industry to receive USB 3.0 certification. With its upgraded data transfer technology, the P6X58D Premium delivers up to 10 times faster data transfers compared to USB 2.0-based motherboards. USB 3.0 is expected to improve the transfer of rich media content and large files from the latest, technologically advanced digital devices. The P6X58D Premium is built on the Intel X58 chipset and the Intel LGA1366 socket. It also supports the upcoming 32nm 6-Core CPU and SATA 6G Technology rounding out its premium feature set.

Supporting Uncompromising USB 3.0 Performance on a Full Range of Motherboards
ASUS has introduced USB 3.0 technology to its line of motherboards equipped with the Intel LGA1366, Intel LGA 1156, and AMD AM3 sockets. A Unique PCIe X4 Bridge Chip available in some motherboards such as the ASUS P7P55D / - E Series and the U3S6 PCIe expansion card unleashes USB 3.0 performance and supports new SATA 6Gb/s data throughput. This specially-designed onboard IC eliminates transmission bottlenecks, delivering up to 50%* better performance and thus making it possible to transfer a 20GB HD movie or a 4MB song in less than 70 seconds or 0.01 seconds respectively. ASUS' unique expansion chip also affords the ability to ensure SLI or CrossFireX configurations without affecting SATA 6G or USB 3.0 performance on selected models.
